Quesadillas are a quick, easy recipe that is deliciously crisp and cheesy. This is a must-have for busy weeknights.

It was nothing fancy. It wasn’t anything fancy. It was really just two tortilla slices and a few cheese slices. That’s it. It only cost me about $1.

These quesadillas are delicious. These bad boys would have made my college experience so much better.

Ground beef crumbled with taco seasoning is layered on a creamy layer of refried beans. The avocado goodness is piled on top.

This is a quesadilla paradise. This is something I will have every night of this week. It’s not like I don’t have time to make it up.


  • Olive oil one tablespoon
  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1 Tablespoon Old El Paso(tm), taco seasoning mix
  • 1 (4.5-ounce can) Old El PasoTM chopped green chiles drained
  • 8 (8-inch) Old El Paso(tm) flour tortillas for burritos
  • 1 (16-ounce can) Old El Paso ™ refried beans, heat
  • Two avocados peeled and seeded.
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh cilantro leaves chopped into two tablespoons


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line the baking sheet with parchment.
  • Heat olive oil over medium heat in a medium-sized skillet. Cook the ground beef until it is browned (about 3-5 minutes), crumbling the meat as you cook. Drain the excess fat, then stir in the taco seasoning with green chiles. Set aside.
  • Add refried beans to the tortilla, then add avocado, mozzarella, and ground beef. Top with another tortilla. Repeat with the remaining tortillas for four quesadillas.
  • Place the quesadillas on the baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes until cheese is melted.
  • Garnish with cilantro if you wish.
